I like the first version a lot better. It seems more in character for Frank to just casually blow someone away instead of milking the scene for a dramatic line - he's like 'yeah, I killed 'em - so what? They were crooks.' Also, it doesn't attempt to justify what he did - the latter version all but says outright 'ah, the others are wimps; Frank's the only REAL man in the room', which I find offensive.
And as for the 'what's worse' question, I would say Frank's blowing them away, definitely. I mean, it's not as simple as 'they're crooks, therefore evil' - the MU has a long history of crooks reforming and working on the side of the angels. Look at the Porcupine - he was a villain for pretty much his entire career, but he had a change of heart, died fighting the good fight, and now his armor is on display in Avengers Mansion, labeled as belonging to an 'honored foe'. Look at Baron Zemo - he was a modern=day NAZI, forcryin'outloud, and even he is more or less a good guy these days. Hell, look at this group here - Diamondback was a member of the Serpent Society, if I'm remembering correctly, but she's changed her spots, too.
Moreover, Cap's men themselves are criminals here - they're outlaws, defying a legal mandate. Goldbug and the Plunderer are low-level supercrooks offering help - they're not asking anything in return, they just want to help. Everyone's in the same basket here - blowing them away for being crooks is not only morally shaky and so forth, it's outrageously hypocritical.
